Sky Watch Friday, Heavens Aglow



As the storm moved by,
The clouds glowed beautifully during the morning sunrise

The sky quickly returned to a leaden gray and remained dreary until late afternoon.

A moment in time captured digitally; otherwise this moment of color would only have been a memory, soon to be lost among the clutter of my rapidly aging mind.

Someone tell me why the skies around here haven't shown any color in weeks. I really am beginning to miss the sunshine. I love this photograph!

Carole said...

Sometimes stormy skies are the most interesting. Very nice shot.

ASH's Eye said...

WOW! It looks like a special effect. I love how the clouds sort of match the brown in the fields.

All of your ice pictures are beyond beautiful, too :)

This is a very nice scene and the clouds are nice and reflected in the fields. I like the little buildings in the scene.

Meggie said...

So hard to believe that in between our dull grey Pa skies, you could find such a beautiful shot. Your early morning photo walks sure reap nice benefits.

Andrea said...

Thank goodness that images like this can be captured and preserved.In reality,they are so short lived but maybe that is part of their beauty?

The sky is beautiful Salty... the blending of the colours is superb.. Natures at is colourful best in the morning.
The buildings and rolling fields also have me in awe... certainly a place I would find of interest.

Have a great Weekend.
